For many years, Designmuseum Danmark had wanted to display some of its enormous stored collection of chairs as part of its permanent exhibition. To tell the story of Danish design through the chair. The museum asked the designer Boris Berlin to come up with a solution that showed a representative range of the collection. It was important to create a different space of curiosity and reflection.

Guests can embark on a scenic journey of the many types of chairs, which draw a picture of the 20th-century Danish success story and export adventure known as Danish Modern.
